Heater Points

Button it! Note to supporters of the Bruce Rauner Turnaround Agenda: your time has come, please turn around.

Haha, Governor Rauner will get his opportunity to make good on a campaign promise to turn the State of Illinois around. The Illinois Legislature plans to call a vote on the Turnaround Agenda in six days, on May 14.

While six days is the same amount of time needed to turn around an aircraft carrier, one Lake County legislator is not as sanguine as the n00b Republican Governor of Illinois. State Representative Ed Sullivan is opposed to Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan's efforts to fasttrack the Bruce Rauner Turnaround Agenda through the Illinois House. Sullivan told the Sun-Times ...
"Gov. Rauner is trying to negotiate things in totality," Sullivan said. "Speaker Madigan doesn't want any part of it, so he's trying to bring out the heater points. Cause chaos."
Mike Madigan schedules vote on right-to-work, urges Rauner to give details
Easy for spoilsport Sullivan to say, who occupies a safe legislative district. But any Operative who has read this tough-talk will most certainly have one question for Rep Sullivan:
Heater Points? What is a heater point?
Note to Ops: you have probably been challenged, since back in the day, to bring out all sorts of different things. But if you are like your LakeCountyEye, it's never been to bring out the heater points.

Make no mistake about it, the heater point is positioned to become the State's next hot-button issue. Therefore, your LakeCountyEye has agreed to crowdsource the question over to you. The first Operative to plausibly explain what a heater point is, gets a 60 day free trial subscription to this blog. And the gratitude of a Governor for having rescued his Turnaround Agenda.

This, of course, means you must be able to use heater points in an sentence. Some examples:
  • Whoa, have you ever had anyone look at those heater points?

  • Gabriel Heater points out that when the rate of return on capital exceeds the rate of growth of output and income, as it did in the nineteenth century and seems quite likely to do again in the twenty-first, capitalism automatically generates arbitrary and unsustainable inequalities that radically undermine the meritocratic values on which democratic societies are based.

  • My heater points due North.
Send your entries, with a SASE, to Do not delay, the Bruce Rauner Turnaround Agenda is riding on your answer.
